Janet Kaombe chats to us about her time at SAWC

Janet Kaombe from Malawi shares her experience of her time at the Southern African Wildlife College. It is wonderful to hear that Janet is so inspired to bring positive change to her community.

CITW: How would you describe your experience at the Southern African Wildlife College?

Janet Kaombe: One of the greatest things I have learnt at the college was how to work in a team and most importantly how to cooperate with people from different cultural backgrounds and values. This changed the way I perceived the world.

CITW: How has this opportunity impacted your life?

Janet: I was fortunate to be selected to attend the bridging course. The knowledge I have gained in Environmental Education has helped me to convey conservation awareness better in my home country, Malawi. My self-esteem and communication skills have greatly improved since I attended the course and I am more confident to interact with people.

CITW: Which would you say was your favourite course and why?

Janet: I would say Field Ranger training where during the anger training where I learnt the importance of trust and to understand different animal behaviours. I also loved the discussions about interesting facts of trees and their uses.

CITW: What is your greatest wish?

Janet: My greatest wish and goal in life is to participate in the process of bringing about positive change in my local community through educational empowerment.
